Saker believes changes will suit his bowlers

 

Bowling coach David Saker believes England’s pace attack is ready to cash in on new playing regulations for one-day internationals.

The latest changes mean quick bowlers can now use two bouncers per over, one more than before, while the maximum number of fielders outside the 30-metre ring in non-powerplays has been reduced from five to four.

Saker believes an attack that includes the likes of Steven Finn, Stuart Broad, Tim Bresnan and Stuart Meaker can flourish.

“I think they’ll be in favour of us with the fast bowling attack we have, definitely in English conditions although India may be a little different.

“The big thing is the extra bouncers that will be bowled. If the wicket is conducive it is going to play into our hands.”
